Jane Woodman - Aerial

Single review by wayoutwest@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk


San Francisco DIY artist Jane Woodman has released a new video for the song 'Aerial', taken from her album 'Teenage Red'. Jane has been making somewhat of a stir in the indie music scene, tastefully fusing such genes as shoegaze, dreampop and darkwave, and establishing a local following for her live venues in the region.



This video is rather dark and experimental, as is the track, with a haunting metallic blip/clink background sound, sitting cosily under a bed of warm, woozy, lush guitar and angelic vocals. It's all very reminiscent of the early 4AD sound - Dif Juz and even Cocteau Twins' infamous Guthrie-gaze guitar bliss comes to mind when hearing the guitar…



The vocals or melody crafted by Woodman are not even comparable to anything out there - they take you elsewhere, thus proving the name of this song to be very fitting, 'Aerial', because that is where it takes you. Do fly, sooner than later… We’ve also decided to give you a sampling of a few other tracks from this spectacular album.



Woodman independently released 'Teenage Red' earlier this year after running an Indiegogo campaign, with support in mixing from Monte Vallier of Ruminator Audio and mastering from Josh Bonati, both of whom have worked with The Soft Moon, Weekend, Wax Idols. Prior to that, several years had passed since releasing her debut EP 'Poéme Èlectronique'.
